    I love the irony of Tetris being used to promote the sanctity of intellectual property (2:06).

    I can imagine this being used today.

    "Billy! What are you doing? Don't you remember what the video said?"

    "These are DVD's mom."

    It's no wonder piracy is such a problem.

    That video was bad even for the 90s.

    I think 9 out of every 10 Commodore 64 games that I own are a direct result of my older cousin's copying benefaction. Mille grazie, Brandon.

    This is as old as the hills, and so is discussion of it.

    It was sufficiently trendy that they even cooked up an official (and very bizarre) sequel to it two and a half years ago.

    I have a boxed arcade stick for SNES and Genesis that has the exact same design as one of the backgrounds used behind the horrible rapper.

    When I first saw it I knew I was staring in a vortex of space/time back to 1992.

    So what's the difference between a mullet and long hair?

    Time to copy this video to a DVD ... I wonder how much this guy is freaking out about today's piracy problem.

    Edit: Wait never mind I just finished watching the video and now it says I have permission to copy... LAME. lol

    It is an inviolable law that anytime someone or something tries to be cool they or it will fail, and miserably so.
